Design Your Suit
We begin your journey by selecting the perfect fabric from hundreds of colours and patterns to create custom made suits Melbourne design. Personalise each piece with design elements such as signature lapels and quality linings and buttons made from natural materials such as horn, shell and timber.
No less than 30 individual measurements are taken to ensure that we have captured all the relevant information to move to the next step, creating a design. We check everything from body circumference to shoulder slope, posture and arm position. This information enables us to draft a custom pattern which will become the blueprint from which your garments will be cut.
The Suit Creation
Once your measurements are drafted into a unique design, we use the latest technology to laser cut the chosen materials. Every aspect of garment construction is meticulously carried out. It will take between 6-8 weeks for your garments to be brought to life by our tailors, using a combination of the very latest in technology and the finest old-world craftsmanship.
Custom Suit First Fit
Your first fitting usually occurs 4-5 weeks after your measurement fitting. During the 1st fitting, we ensure every detail meets your expectations and the cut of the garments are true to your requirements. Regular clients will only require this 1st fitting. However, a 2nd fitting may be arranged depending on what adjustments are needed. At this point, any alterations are completed on-site in our Fitzroy tailors shop, with adjustments to your pattern being made accordingly to ensure your next garment is delivered in the most timely and convenient manner.
